How the fuck does anyone even find this hot? Cutters just make me feel really bad for them.
I feel like we might actually need a femanon to answer these questions.
Because I've done some pretty stupid shit in my life and never gotten this urge. Maybe they see it as a less permanant way to get the attention from suicide?
That's the universal sign for "DONT stick your dick in" - they're crazy.
Unless you want a permanent tail that won't stop texting you and calling your cell phone at 3 am.
My cousin dated a crazy cunt and she would say he did it when she cut her thighs. Someone needed to smack her. Hard. With a chair.
I can only say why I used to do it, it wasn't for attention cuz I was careful not to let people see it. Basicly I was in a lot of emotional pain and I didn't know how to cope with it, hurting myself physically helped me get myself under control when I was in a huge amount of emotional pain. It was a stop gap that I used until I learned better ways of coping with that kind of stuff.
Some people just do it for attention, but a lot of people do it because they just don't know what else to do.
Stress relief. I don't do it anymore, there's better ways to reduce stress. It was also something I did when I was angry. I don't know why, but I think it was so others weren't affected by my anger. I'd cut and the anger would go. I went too far one night though. Hit my radial and my heart stopped. Bled out in the tub. Brought back in the ambulance, heart stopped again, brought back. Now I have an ugly-as-fuck scar and barely any feeling in my hand.
Get professional help if you feel like you need to cut. People are out there who will listen, and it helps a lot just to talk to someone with an unbiased opinion. Good luck. Chins up.
Shes the girls you meet at the mental hospital and lose your virginity to.
jesus fuck, I didn't think I would actually need a sarcasm tag.
haha, no. Pic related.
"Don't stick your dick in crazy"
I used to cut because physical pain > emotional pain and then I learned how to handle my emotions like an adult
really glad i quit, i dont want the stigma that comes with stupid cutting scars
it's kind of a funny story is a good movie.
man I don't know if I would ever get to a point where I would cut. I would say I've been mildly depressed for like 5-6 years, but have never considered cutting. I wonder if it would just take a few shitty things to get there
cutting yourself causes endorphin release, which numbs emotions and causes pleasure like weak pain pills at best. i would rather shoot heroin than cut myself if i ever could feel that bad
ugh japanese cartoons are annoying with those big bug eyes. stahp please. delete image
Fucked a girl that looked like that. Some of the best pussy i ever had. She wasnt a cutter though, just mild crazy and future stripper. Tried to have buttsecks with her and she bronzed me. Fucked her on the bosses bed while she was house sitting. Boss was ultimate beta cuck. Good times.
It isn't bait, look at her clothes and her stance, she's obviously just starting, but she is showing off her working out. Are you really so socially inept that you cannot fathom that? While she might have held the phone in the other hand to make sure the scars are displayed, to strike a convo about how sad she was, but now she's overcome her deep, scary past, the point of this picture is for displaying her gym results. Show me the source of this picture and I'm 100% positive it'll say something about "lost x amount of pounds", "home from gym", "2 weeks of progress", or "worked out my <blank> today".
i look for girl who are hot and cut its hot af to me that there's so many possibilities to why and the fact that a good looking girl is that low where she has to do it .plus possibility of daddy issues
can we make this a sexy cutters thread?
How does it make sense? I've heard this 'explanation' so many times, and I still don't get it. Why does self-mutilation relieve emotional pain? Why does 'not knowing what else to do' translate into cutting your fucking body up? What happened to lashing out, neuroses, turning inwards, social complications? How the fuck is that a coping mechanism?
I'm with you. This makes no fucking sense. Everyone that does it does it for attention imo. But maybe im just a fag that doesnt get it even though i had a terrible childhood. And my coping was being entirely immersed in video games my entire life
So did I, that's why I don't get it. I've struggled through tons of shit, mental and purely real-life horseshit, dysfunctional family, clinical depression. Not once did I think "oh hey maybe if I cut my thighs up I'll get over this". I also didn't scope out attention from people, so maybe there's a goddamn link.
For me it helps as a distraction from emotional pain. I don't want people to know though, so not for attention. I have people that care about me, but nothing else seems to be enough to get my mind off of things. Also, I feel like I'm not good enough, so cutting makes it feel okay.
That's a good thought. I stayed out of the way and out of sight instinctually. Maybe I'd have been more inclined to cut if I liked having people looking at me or a scar for someone to come across eventually and see the physical manifestation of my struggle
I used to
when you have depression there aren't a lot of ways to feel anything
like i dont want to kill myself but I want to feel fucking SOMETHING and pain is something so i go with that
it's not sadness as much as it's muteness to feelings
Cutting is basically a warning sign
'I am unstable' or 'I cannot handle my first world lifestyle. being given everything my entire life is difficult enough'
OR my personal favorite
'I want to fit in with the faggy emo kids papa'
"I cannot handle my first world lifestyle"
Truer words could not be said, talked to a cute girl who within the second date told me she cut and missed being at the psycheward.
She texted me eventually why don't we hang out ever, you were fun. Didn't bother responding back hoping she would cut over it.
I used to do it, it was a pressure release valve mixed with a desire to punish myself for percieved failures and mistakes I'd made. Often preceded by cyclical thoughts, a sudden "bottom fell out" feeling and intense, uncontrollable fear.
It's a bad way to handle anything and I encourage anyone doing it or considering doing it to seek help before it becomes the first thing you turn to in a crisis. What feels better in the moment - that adrenaline and euphoria - leaves you with potentially serious injuries, guilt, scars, and still with the same underlying problem you started with.
Fuck those kids on social media who scratch themselves lightly with a compass and post sadface pictures though. That shit has turned the whole issue into a stigma where people with serious problems are scared to seek help for fear of being labelled attention seekers and overdramatic. They're immature people who don't realise the damage they're causing to people with serious mental health issues.
This it /b/. /b/ is RANDOM you retards. When it's something serious we can give serious advice. When it's something stupid that op should already know about we usually fuck with them.
WHATS GOING ON IN THIS THREAD???!?!?
I've gone through some very terrible shit in my life and i've never had this stupid pathetic urge to cut myself.. and then people who do cut pull he "i dont know how else to cope" card which grinds my gears.
When I was going through extremely tough stuff i just kept it inside and drank. and it worked until it got better.
because they want to hurt themselves but dont have the balls to kill themselves. in otherwords, people that cut themselves want to feel pain and sorrow but dont have the balls to commit suicide.hence why typical more girls cut than guys and more girls commit suicide than girls.
I was really depressed so I burned myself with cigarettes
this way my focus was on cigarette pain, and not on the depression
so depression feels worse than being burnt by cigarettes, all day, every day
Not gonna lie, I used to cut to cope with emotions and shit, and I would also do it because I could distract my mind, like if I cut myself I would have to clean up and bandage myself up and that would keep my mind preoccupied for a while.
But after a few years of cutting myself, it almost became an addiction and I would do it just because I was bored or I simply enjoyed seeing the wounds and the blood and then the scars after they healed. Now though, if I am struggling, I bruise myself instead, easier to avoid annoying questions and the bruising goes away completely eventually.
Tl;DR: starts cutting to cope, keeps cutting because enjoys the way it looks/feels.
Because cutting? enough said lol pretty stupid thing, the goal is to not get cuts and bruises when possible, who says let me cut my skin besides fuck tards, probably the same weird people shoving nails inside their penis holes
I just said that's why it's morbid, cutting = actual suicide attempt in some cases, usually just morons cutting their skin though. So it's morbid to say kill yourself, just a joke. But short hair girls are fucking stupid, not sexy
Cutting = Release of endorphin
It's a high in itself, mentally and physically.
That's why attention whores like to cut, not because it brings attention (it does), but for the high.
They got off on attention
They get off on endorphins
It's why attention whores usually end up as legitimate whores, druggies, etc.
Someone did it in the fucking Bible, dude. It's not some trend. People do it. If you do it to be cool then you are fucking stupid. It's a coping tool for some, but not everyone gets the same benefits from it.
Not saying it is net beneficial, but it does have benefits for some people
nike shorts are made for ogling. End of story. Also: sports bras are hot as shit.
Then again, this might be because they are attached to hot girls. Have yet to prove this theory because I haven't seen any ugly chicks only wearing them.
i still havent stopped even thought i can tell full well when shit is outta control, i think one of these days im going to accidently cut off a wrist or an ankle just because i was fansinated with how far i could go and dealing with the pain. i just sit there in silence after a freak out abt my ex or abt my family, i just sit there with some fixation and saw away, stopping occasionally to control the bleeding. i dont even yell out, it becomes painless with diverting your attention from the pain. i sit there as if i was working on my homework.
I really need to try this out myself. I've never done any weight training my entire life.
Maybe I should join the "get fit" challenge at my university.
USfag too. All the people around me are old as fuck. I live in an popular vacation area on the east coast where over 25% of visitors are 65+.
Using it the way I do is different. I do it to wreck my body so I can feel the pain of healing.
The nice ass, arms, abs, and back are just a fucking awesome byproduct.
You need a better reason than "I want to be fit."
Why do you want to be fit or why do you want to workout?
Having a reason helps.
Honestly, it's because I feel like it holds me back in life. Not so much in the "I can't do shit because I'm fat" because that never really happened, even when I weighed 250 pounds.
It's just when I get into social situations with people I constantly get this nagging feeling that they're judging me based on my weight. This especially hurts me when I'm talking with grills.
So yes, it's "I want to get hot chicks", but it's also a matter of I want to feel happy about myself and feel like my outer skin reflects how awesome I am on the inside.
And why TF am I pouring my heart out on /b/?
Lifting weights is only part of overall health training, you have to work toward eating better and more whole foods, less processed foods, drink purified and spring water, fruits and vegetables, you'll have to cut out sodas significantly, and think about if you're eating too much meat or too much dairy products
Oh yeah also you have to do cardio, don't avoid that. But also ralize having too much dairy products fucks up your breathing so if you feel like you suffocate running then dairy isn't helping shit, especially milk more than cheese
I was a stickfag in high school. Finally broke 100lbs in 11th grade after I started working out. Joined the Marines and got up to 150. Been fluctuating a lot (130-180) due to health problems.
150 is where I am now. I hope you get the same from being sore that I do.
After leg day, being able to edge during a fap is fucking amazing. You tense your leg muscles before you release and make your muscles in your legs and feet cramp as you release and it is the best gasm you will ever have sans blowing into the back of someone you like's throat.
By the way: hot girls =\= great sex. It's better than ugly girls, but having a connection with a partner trumps them being super attractive. Having both is great, though.
Believe me, I have the losing weight part down. I've gone from 240-190 in under a year, which while might not be that quick, at least I've stuck with it.
It's just that I'm now moving from fat to skinny-fat
Oh I thought you said you did weigh 250 pounds, yeah same here I went from vegetarian for 3 years to beginning to eat chicken since I've accomplished all I need too already, it also feels uncomfortable gaining more size again but the process continues
I'll let you know as soon as I can get a grill period. Being a commuter student doesn't leave many opportunities for socialization. Losing your v-card when you're older is tough because you put more pressure on yourself. Wishing I asked someone out when I was still in high school...
>Hit my radial and my heart stopped
I'm naturally scared of sharp things. I hate being around or having to use knives. I feel like you can only cut if you have a defective "be afraid of this" gene. Like how some people never get claustrophobic or afraid of heights.
>be me back in HS
>not into it since shits weird but whatever was young and pussy is pussy yo
>luckily she only cut on stomach/thighs so nothing noticeable whilst wearing clothing
>she'd always mention wanting to cut whilst having sex
>keep telling her no but after a few weeks i finally said sure so she would stfu
>so anyways fucking one night
>out comes the razor
>begins to slight cut on stomach
>when I'm pounding away sometimes my thrusts would cause her to cut a little too deep
>blood beginning to bead up
>why does this give me a strange boner.avi?
>get ready to cum
>she tells me to "come on my cuts"
>super hornery so fuck it i blow buckets on her fresh slits
>she moans/screams in ecstasy and says "it burns but it feels so good"
>my dick is now diamonds from all the moans.exe
>she starts rubbing my cum and blood over her cuts like she's finger painting
>this is my new fetish
>we do it a few more times till we break up because she's obviously fucking mental
>have never came harder in my life than i did during those days
shits fucked but goddamn if it wasn't a turn on watching her flench/moan in pain as it burned in her cuts
Especially when you live 40 minutes in the OPPOSITE direction of most of the other students.
you seem to have forgotten where you are friend
its been 12 years and i still think about it/her, shit was kinky but pretty gross. don't know happened to her after HS :(
yeah, I have one year left then I'm moving. The city I live near has nothing interesting. All people ever do is drink. Looking at moving somewhere intersting but not too far away from the family. I've had enough of living with the parents. Best part is I will graduate with zero debt though.
D.C. looks like an interesting area, although I have always liked south Florida too. Anywhere I can get a job with my IT degree really.
Yay, first time for quads.
My ex used to cut in high school. She had some gnarly scars. She went nuts, fucked a bunch of dudes and tried to hit me up recently to catch up.
I looked her up and she's just gone off deep, while I'm dating a real woman now.
I've got 'friends' who legit have scars all along their arms, they look like striped animals they're that noticeable. It means they're fucked when they got out in summer, either long to cover up or short and get questions/stares.
People using "CRAAWWWLING IN MY SKIIIN" as an excuse for doing it is fucking stupid.
Do these people think they're the only fuckers in history to feel like shit? Seriously? Do they not get warned of the emotional stuff that happens during puberty? How exactly does cutting make it any better? Answer, it doesn't.
I've heard loads of other random shit, like picking zits/pimples/scabs is a form of self-harm and other shit, no it isn't, it's just not nice having whiteheads all over your face/body or whatever.
Did I have a shit child hood? Yeah. Was it the worse thing ever? Of course not. Yeah, I get the point of "It doesn't matter if people have it worse, it doesn't make you feel better", true, but you don't permanently disfigure yourself over emotional shit that usually disappears by the time you're an adult. If it doesn't, you've got problems and should seek professional help.
People have said to me "It's like wanting to scream and shout but you know you can't or know it won't help so you cut yourself". It's fucking stupid. It's a neurological trick. It's abusing a body system.
It's like people go "Oh I smoke weed man cause it makes me feel good" - Well, if you need drugs to make yourself feel good, 24/7, you're addicted and you need help. Same with drink.
There is an underlying reason for why you do something, even if you don't think there is. Every decision has been mentally decided before you know you're going to do it.
Femanon and cutter here. I will admit I've got some crazy tendencies but am doing really, really well lately. Cutting, for me, has been an experience that helps me get through bad situations. When my parents were doing drugs and fighting I became far too afraid to use drugs or alcohol and turned to self harm instead. It is comforting seeing my own blood dripping out by my own actions. It feels like I'm getting revenge without hurting anyone else, and when I am so angry (for any reason) that I can't see, this releases the pressure like popping a balloon. When I'm depressed, it relieves the sorrow and centers me.
My gf of 1 year used to cut, up until about 5-6 months ago. From what I can understand, the purpose of it is to distract from emotional pain by focusing on physical pain. Anyone who finds cutting "hot" or "cool" or does it for attention is a sick piece of shit who should burn in hell, but same goes for anyone who would judge someone for cuts. gf is really private about her cuts, she never wears shorts or short skirts (they're on her upper thighs) and she's currently using scar removal cream shit and the only people who know about her cuts are her parents, me, and 1 other friend (and now a bunch of faggots on an anonymous imageboard)
now I just want to post sports bras, because why not?
